Today at Flavorpill, we wondered if Germany’s way of dealing with irresponsible drivers would work in American cities. We took a look at sex in modern art. We saw what RuPaul looked like in 1979. We watched the new Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial. We found out an answer to the eternal question: do big cats purr? We watched people make out on Skype using a pig-shaped robot. We had a chat with a Morrissey zine maker. We traveled to 21 of the most “lesbianish” cities in America. We said goodbye to Dorothea Tanning. We felt the love thanks to this giant Valentine’s Day sculpture in Times Square. We learned how to pronounce things hilariously. And finally, we adored this mashup of the X-Files and Downton Abbey theme songs. Who doesn’t love a little sci-fi with their lavish period drama?
